Here’s something sent to us from Kelly Caroline. Thanks!
I am in a season of uncertainty and confusion. One morning this week I woke up and, instead of getting right to checking emails and voicemails and bank statements, I went to my family room and saw it with fresh eyes. I saw it for what a blessing it is to have such a wonderful, comfortable space to raise my family in. I put on my favorite album, and just laid on the floor, willing to accept the comfort Jesus offers us.
After a while, I knelt next to the window and I looked up. The window frame looked like the cross. I began to envision myself worshipping at the crucifixion as Jesus traded my sin and sorrow and took it on Himself. As I did this, I noticed a single dove had been perched on the power line the whole time and it struck me instantly that that’s how the Holy Spirit is in our lives- there, watching and looking after us. I also noticed that if I wasn’t in this knelt position of worship, I wouldn’t have seen the scene from the right angle. Thankfully, my camera was on the table next to me, so without having to get up, I snapped this photo. I hope this story encourages ReKnew readers to see with fresh eyes our everyday blessings and that God is always present, waiting patiently for us to come to Him.
